“…And this is what God has shown me: ‘I have blessed you for my glory. Not so you will have a comfortable life with a big house and a nice car. Not so you can spend lots of money on vacations, education, or clothing. Those aren’t bad things, but I’ve blessed you so that the nations will know me and see my glory.’

All my life I have completely disconnected God’s blessing from God’s purpose, and now I realize what I had never seen. God has blessed me to show his love to Domingo. God has blessed me to show his mercy and grace to children in Guatemala. That is why God has given me income and education and resources. God saves me so that the nations will know him. He blesses me so that all the earth will see his glory!”
